His warriors want her dead, the Council wants her dead, in fact, his entire planet wants this uninvited visitor dead for good…
He turns to the rest of his men. They all await his command, and why wouldn’t they? He is not just Abaron, not even H’Abaron. He is Hus’Abaron, he is the High Hador, the Great Hunter, Lord of Hunters, and he answers only to the Council, and sometimes not even to them.
Yet Hus’Abaron doesn’t understand why he would stop at nothing to protect this earthling and claim her as his bride.
Sigh. This book had a lot of promise but fell flat. Hard.
The writing was actually a nice mix of show and tell with good dialogue and smart main characters. The plot of a science fiction romance staple of stranded on a planet meet a new culture but I love that.
A fated mate romance, yes, but not insta love on the part of the heroine. The heroine is a linguist anthropologist and we get to actually see her be a genius (as opposed to being told how intelligent a character is with no evidence at all) and interpret the world through these lenses. Awesome!
The hero is reasonable and interesting.
So, what happened. Oh the strangest of typos everywhere. It feels like scanning errors. The cover doesn’t look anything like the hero is suppose to look.
But mainly, the book just gets to a certain point in the romance, they are together, and it quits. The world building ends and there is really so much story to go but it runs out of stream. Sad and frustrated.
